For what it's worth, I just picked up an Assolutamente strap for my 292 at the boutique in NYC. Mine looks more like the strap on the right I think. I am really loving it. The OEM strap with the 292 never cut it for me. I had Greg Stevens do a nice black strap instead (which I still love) but there's just something about the Assolutamente's contrast with the black ceramic that just works. I agree with other posters that the hides are not identical and so color variation will happen.
